Elevating EL-34 tone to a menacing new realm.
Prepare to be shocked. Because sometimes, things come together in a way that exceeds all hopes and plans. That's certainly the case with Mesa Boogie's newest Stiletto—it rocks so hard it's guaranteed to ACE your expectations as well.
Only once before has so much performance been this portable—and that was 35 years ago with the introduction of the first Boogie Combo. What that amp did for the American Rock scene, the ACE promises to do for the British legacy. Make it versatile. Keep it powerful. Let it be portable.
Players have come to expect a great clean sound in every MESA amp, and the Stiletto ACE delivers in spades. Cleans like you've never heard before from an EL34 amp. Chiming transparent clarity riding atop warm breathing lows, and all this 3-D magic is delivered with stunning dynamic attack.
Combining this more aggressive preamp with the brighter, faster feel of the Ace's 50-watt power, creates a Stiletto that cuts with more depth and finesse than any of its English counterparts. Even veteran tone snobs need to check this amp.
Mesa has also included a patented Switchable Rectifier feature that allows you to tune the power supply for the feeling that best suits your style—Tube for a vintage-inspired sag or Silicon Diodes for tight tracking punch and authority.
So stack the deck with the ultimate Brit-inspired Tone, hand-made in Petaluma, California. Deal yourself in—because the Ace lays down a handful of fresh tricks no amp from the Kingdom ever dared to play.
Each Channel contains 3 Modes:
Channel 1 focuses on rhythm sounds with the big warmth of Fat Clean or the urgent attack of Tite Clean, while Crunch hits hard with mid-gain for the ultimate British chording sound.
Channel 2 starts with a duplicate of Channel 1 Crunch—selecting Tube Rectification here creates an awesome solo sound. An infusion of tube juice creates the blistering high-gain focus of Tite Gain and another shot unleashes the liquid soul of Fluid Drive.
The patented Switchable Rectifier feature enables you to select the type of rectification for each channel. Use the tight-tracking punch of the Diode setting for maximum headroom in either Clean mode or more aggression in Crunch and use the elastic sag of Tube for ultimate expression in Tite Gain or Fluid Drive for lead sounds.
Bold/Spongy Power located on the main AC Power switch provides a reduced line voltage setting for additional power sag and enhanced top end harmonic content.
Front Panel location allows on-the-fly selection of incoming line voltage with the full 117 volts for headroom and authority or a reduced voltage setting (like a built-in Variac) for a vintage-inspired brown vibe.
Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.
